Jason, you can wait for a real hot day and just crack the top toon plugs, if you hear any air escape you  have a intact toon w/o leak. Pressurizing the toons is scary, they look tough but can bust at seam easily. This is what we did with ours, MHO. If you want you can run your toon QUICKLY around the ramp area and back onto the trailer then check your drain plugs as well. More than likely if you dont see a crack and the toons are not banged up they r good.

Ooops, newbie here, did not see the post where you had water leak for sure. Yep test and weld! If you can put some water in the toons and check for leak on trailer, mark, drain and weld

Guys, see my post on FRP board for siding. Its waterproof, strong, cheap, easy and you dont have the pain of the aluminum or the pinch rails. It worked perfect for us. You can see the results in the rebuild section under Sweet Water rebuild.
